How to Make A Hug For You Card

What You'll Need:

  • Construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Markers
  • Craft glue

1. To make the card, cut out a large plate-sized head shape and draw on hair and a face so that it looks like you. Cut out an 18x4-inch rectangle. This will be the arms. Glue the head to the middle of the arms.

2. Now trace around your hands on a separate sheet of paper, and cut out the hand shapes. Glue a hand to the end of each arm. Fold the arms in so that the hands overlap.

3. Inside the arms write a message for Dad, such as "Here is a big loving hug for you on Father's Day!"

The only thing he could like better than this card is a real hug to go along with it!
